I was born on the water; the sky and sea my television. The elements are in my blood and I am inspired by the sky over water, the reflections, the play of light, how one affects the other. I frequently work outdoors, finding comfort and meaning through the exploration of wild and elemental landscapes. Painting on site enables me to fully and mindfully immerse myself in my environment, cultivating a deeper understanding and meditative connection with my subject matter.
Rose is a contemporary landscape painter from South Devon working primarily with oils.
In a time where we need to reconnect, Rose's work aims to provoke an appreciation for the environments' strength and beauty.
Rose currently lives and works between South Devon and Edinburgh.
